What do the different statuses in the address table mean?
ACTIVE - addresses for buildings which are standing. This status represents the overwhelming majority of addresses.
RECOMMENDED - addresses which have been recommended (suggested) by a DC GIS employee for approval by DCRA.
ASSIGNED - addresses which have been assigned (approved) by DCRA, but whose buildings have not yet been constructed.
RETIRE - addresses for buildings that have been demolished or for addresses which represented space which has since been occupied by a different address (example: a retail store closing and being taken over by a neighboring store which knocks the wall down).
TEMPORARY - addresses which will exist for a relatively short period of time. Construction trailers, special event tents may be given this TEMPORARY designation.
MISTAKE - addresses which are incorrect. These MISTAKE addresses are automatically deleted each and every evening. These MISTAKE addresses are due to incorrect data being entered using the MAR Maintenance Tool.
